Paulien Schipper is a traditional artist-goldsmith with a love for technique and (art)history. The wisdom, wealth and beauty of past centuries inspire her to design jewelry:
‘In my designs I try to translate my search in life. I combine aesthetics, technique and wearability into one timeless image. I see life itself as well as this beautiful craft as a continuous learning process, with new challenges and discoveries over and over‘.
Since 2003 Paulien has been working on her own designs, repairs and restorations as well as for other artists and goldsmiths. She was educated in Schoonhoven and is a gemmologist according to the Dutch Gemmological Institute.
Her work has several times been on show at Sieraad Art Fair and will be on show at Masterly The Hague in September 2021.
